If there's anything that we should know, it's that what we think is beautiful and cool is always changing. Our definition of beauty is evolving constantly and will only continue to morph as the years go on. 

To give us further proof of this principle, Buzzfeed released a video that shows the history of our ideal beauty standards for women in the last 3,000 years. The video starts with Ancient Egypt and goes all the way up to our current beauty standards. 

What is truly shocking about the clip is just the wide variety of things that we once considered attractive, and how quickly those standards can change in a matter of a few years. 

The super positive takeaway from the clip is that you should appreciate yourself as you are, and never get disheartened with how you look because what's cool and beautiful one day can totally change the next.
